Fellow Moms, It’s OK to Admit Mom Life Can Be Boring

Last year, my husband and I finally went on our honeymoon. We didn’t have a chance to go six years ago when we married, because we had an infant and no money.

We got our chance to be alone, without kids and it was glorious! I learned so much about myself and was able to reconnect with me husband in so many ways. 

One snippet I learned about myself, is that social media is my go-to when I’m bored. When we had each day planned with explorations, I had no desire to be on my phone. I had to remind myself to check it intermittently. 

When we came home, I realized I was on my phone often. That’s when I realized sometimes mom life can be boring AF. 

Sure, I might have a million things on my to-do list, but they aren’t necessarily exciting. Taking the kids to school, grocery shopping, paying bills don’t exactly ignite a fire of fun. However, they’re necessary. 

Don’t get me wrong, my kids are great. I love them and we do have some exciting times together. I love playing board games, baking and going to the park with them, but I just want to make my admission that sometimes mom life is just boring. Watching the same episode of Bubble Guppies twenty times isn’t exactly engaging. 

Pinterest does have a million ideas to engage children, thankfully! But sometimes a mama just needs some adult time. Some fellow mamas may feel the same. Personally, my adult interaction is limited to my very few co-workers, parents of my kids friends and my few friends I can make time for  without the kids. 

I do find time to myself with this blog and love the engagement it gives me with fellow moms, but intellectual conversation doesn’t always happen with my toddler. Ya feel me? 

How do you avoid boredom in your every day mom life?
